Video: My Girlfriend is a Mountain Biker
Been in major car accidents and other situations where I was definitely in full-adrenaline shock. That is certainly no fun, but a little bit of adrenaline when you're having fun on your favorite downhill section is great. I am "afraid" when I ride on busy country/suburban roads. No adrenaline, just a rational fear of being hit by unaware driver. In the city and gravel back roads I enjoy the peaceful ride sans adrenaline. The adrenaline rush comes from having wrecked or knowing that if you make a mistake, you'll be in the weeds. When you hit that trail and just pin it, within inches of disaster, that's an awesome feeling. You may be a downhill guy moving at 50mph, or you may be an XC rider hitting that perfect line through the rocks at 10mph, but its the risk of dabbing (or risk of death) that push you just past comfort and into the adrenaline rush.

Could we poll the female riders on pinkbike to determine at what age they started riding offroad, if they played any contact sports, or ever rode an atv/moto before age 18? I think you'll find that most women in our sport got into going fast through the woods and maybe getting hurt at a young age, just like most men in our sport.

My wife is the same. Will ride all day on the road, gravel, doubletrack, but as soon the trees start getting a bit too close, the trail a bit too bumpy, she's done. I blame it on the fact that her parents always put her in stereotypical gender roles. Many women are like this. They associate exercise with looking good and enjoying a day outside. For most dudes, exercise is just an added bonus to the adrenaline rush of winning, shredding, almost dying, going fast, etc. You know what, I've met guys who grew the exact same way. No cars, no motos, no bikes, nothing involving speed or competition, and today, they are risk averse. It's almost as though you've gone your entire life without drinking a beer by the time your 30, and you say "this tastes terrible, why would I start drinking now?" Only it's adrenaline instead of beer. Some people never associated adrenaline with speed, control, fear, etc.

Pinkbike Announces 'Trailforks'
wait, isn't entitlement also saying "i should be able to be build secret trails without anyone knowing and have them stay hidden forever." That sounds like a pretty skewed reality.
